Weekend Cooking: Is Weekend Baking this time.

Sunken Rhubarb Cake

You need:

2 stems of rhubarb, 150 g flour,
125 g butter, 100 g starch,
2 egg yolks, 1/2 bag baking powder,
1/2 cup milk, 100 g grounded almonds,
150 g sugar

Cut the rhubarb into 1 cm pieces and put them in a bowl with water and a little sugar. Set aside. Gently mix the egg yolks and the sugar. Add the melted butter and stir. Mix flour, starch and baking poweder and add all through a sieve into the bowl with egg, sugar and butter. Stir. Add milk and grounded almonds and stir.
Take a springform pan and cover the ground with baking paper. Put in the dough and place half-moon shaped rhubarb pieces on it. Bake for 50 minutes with 175°C.

I like the look of the moon-shaped rhubarb pieces sunken into the cake. If you want to you can decorate the cake with powder sugar.

I made the pie to welcome home the great thinker from his 10 day bike tour with his buddies. The tour was exhausting and he was starved.

  1. I can't get over how pretty this cake looks :)
    Hope your exhausted bike rider enjoyed it!

  2. Thanks. It's an eye-catcher. You can easily replace the rhubarb with sour apples. Take apple quarters and scratch lines in it. Looks super pretty, too.

  3. This is the 2nd rhubarb recipe this weekend...I need to try it!

  4. This looks really lovely and unique! I never know what to do with rhubarb other than make a crumble out of it. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I too love the way the cake looks with its pretty half-moon shapes. And it also looks so easy.

  6. Definitely agree: that cake is so pretty! And it looks and sounds delicious, too.
